Milan Cathedral - The Duomo
You’ll be thoroughly impressed as you approach Italy’s largest church. It’s 108 meters high and drips with gothic gravitas. However, it truly hits you when you’re inside. It’s vast. 160 meters long, 92 meters wide and it holds 40,000 people.
The art and adornments that you’ll admire are similarly epic too. There are sarcophagi of luminaries from centuries gone by – exotic sounding names and titles of Milanese dignitaries – and countless Renaissance statues. It even has Italy’s largest organ, which clocks in at a whopping 15,350 pipes.
Check ticket availability
First of all we went to change our e-tickets to the real ones, which was easy and fast and after went to Cathedral. Was very hot that day and people were standing in a line to enter the Duomo. Fast track worked just perfectly and we entered immediately. Keep in mind that shoulders, back and knees must be covered, you can purchase special cape for 2 eur at the place, where you get your tickets.
Audio guide was included to our ticket, which was very interesting and informative as well.
we went to the terrace by elevator (and thanked god thousands times, that we decided to take the elevator) was around 37 degr C and ppl who were coming from the stairs were exhausted...
didn't manage to get to the museum, cuz came a bit late, but ticket was valid for 3 days for we had opportunity to make it next day.
very satisfied with this choice!
